The leading multinational food and beverage company will source wheat produced sustainably in the Bajío region of Mexico from farmers who participate in CIMMYT’s research and capacity building networks.
Nitrogen-efficient wheats can provide more food with fewer greenhouse gas emissions, new study shows
Scientists used a wild grass trait that inhibits soil microbes from producing environmentally-harmful nitrogen compounds. Widespread use of the new technology could lower global use of fertilizers for wheat crops.
New leadership will continue to build on scientific excellence on maize and wheat research.
Bangladesh could largely reduce greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture while increasing efficiency in production
Farmers could save costs and contribute to climate mitigation by adopting easy-to-access farming methods like better nitrogen management, intermittent irrigation, and strip tillage, study shows.
